Mayzie has just one Christmas wish on her list: To fulfill her longing to lean on someone special and find a home.

This black beauty has just one Christmas wish on her list: To fulfill her longing to lean on someone special and find a home.

Through kinds eyes and a quiet personality, Mayzie’s spirit soothes emotions and satisfies the soul.

Every Tuesday, The Duncan Banner participates in Take Out Tuesday with the Stephens County Humane Society (SCHS) when we get to spend a few hours in the afternoon with one special pup.

This week, Mayzie, a three-year-old Pyrenees and retriever mix, had the words “peace” and “calm” written all over her heart. This sweet girl is little shy, but has a loving spirit about her, and she warms up to belly rubs and cuddles.

Content just laying by your side or by your feet, this gorgeous girl will give be sure to give her next owner a sense of comfort and protection. 

Sudden movements and loud noises tend to startle Mayzie, but patience and getting on her level prove to calm her.

While Mayzie likes to lay still at times, she proved herself an outdoorsy type of girl who loves the wind blowing through her shiny coat.

She walks excellent on the leash with her perked tail and ears, and Mayzie seems like she is always up for a walk to the park. Mayzie’s even good at walking up and down the stairs or just even roaming around on her own.

A gentle giant, Mayzie loves cuddles, hugs, and will lean into the comfort of her person. She even showed how gentle she is during lunchtime, when she showed off the best manners and took each bit of food daintily.

For more about Mayzie or to set up an appointment to meet her, call 580-252-7387 between the hours of noon and 4 p.m. Weekends have extended hours until 6 p.m.

Those who are willing to be a foster can take an adoptable dog from Monday, Nov. 23 to noon on Friday, Nov. 27, giving them a home and family for the holidays.

These pups would love some extra attention during the holidays, and to potentially catch some leftovers from such a hearty meal. For those interested in the SCHS Foster Program, contact the shelter and put yourself on the list to give a dog a taste of home.
